Cellar Door Skeptics #172: Sir Scams A lot 

CLICK IMAGE TO LISTEN TO THE SHOW!

Cellar Door Skeptics are back this week after a one week hiatus. We apologize for the week off and come back full force this week to talk about some important topics. This week the duo talks about digital remote diagnosis that has been sweeping the country and is what some has lauded as an answer to expensive doctors visits. The discussion centers around if this is worth it and what the constraints to this method of diagnosis could be. The show continues talking about a supplement study that shows that supplements are not what they are cracked up to be. The show also will cover a discussion on social media scams that have started to become more prominent. The show ends as always with the team’s quick saves of the week.

Cellar Door Skeptics 169: Budgeting for a Crisis

Click Image to Listen to the Show!!!

This episode brings an analysis of the Trump budget. The duo looks at the differences between last year’s budget, this years budget and how it compares to other administrations budgets. They also look at the history of the deficit VS GDP and if Trump’s claim that Obama was worse fiscally than him is true or not. If that was not enough they also look into a conservative analysis of the federal deficit for a unique perspective.

The show ends as usual with Tanner and Hanna’s quick saves of the week.

Click the Image to Listen to the Show!!!

During this episode we head back to warmer waters of our podcast by bringing back some of our traditional segments. This week the team talks about Cohen and his little quips he threw out every few minutes. Also they talk through a new proposed Michigan Road Tax that Tanner asks the honest question of how to pay for the roads if the people do not want more taxes. The show continues to the final segment with a discussion on the current state of Israel, the corruption of the current government, and what the future will hold if the Prime Minister is convicted and removed from office.

The show ends on the usual note talking about their Quick Saves of the week.

Cellar Door Skeptics 166: Black History Month & More with The Triple C’s

This show’s guest for the night is Christopher Banks, whom is currently running for the State House in Michigan in 2020. He joins us tonight to discuss Black History Month, share his stories, and help give credit to the minorities who have helped shape this country. Without Minorities, we would not be the nation we are today. We discuss the origins of Black History Month, experiences with helping others learn about black culture and contributions, all while enjoying each other’s company. The show is almost like the trifecta of Christopher’s as there are three on this episode. The team even gets Mr. Banks to throw out a Quick Save as they look at what they learned for the week.

Cellar Door Skeptics 165: Be Intellectually Humble Through Intelligent Speculation

Well if you have not heard the news, #45 is not shutting down the government, but issuing a national emergency to get his ridiculous wall built. This week on the show we had to address the wall, some of the criticisms or lies that he is supporting to try and fund the wall, and how there could be an emerging law suit all because he has to brag about his supposed accomplishments.

The interview part of the show is with a PHD candidate of Physics and creator of Intellegent Speculation Platform. We discuss with him what he purposes as the laws of critical thinking, how he became a freethinker, and his journey to agnosticism. Given the climate we live in, this is an important subject we hope everyone engages in to try with the upcoming elections.

The show closes talking about our charity of the week and our Quick Saves.

Cellar Door Skeptics 164: Everyone Is Awesome and Agnostic Except Jesus

CLICK THE IMAGE TO LISTEN TO THE SHOW!!!

This episode functions like the Lego Movie’s theme of “Everything is Awesome” while looking at being an Agnostic Atheist. They start the episode out by talking the phenomena that Hanna has found where Paper Airplanes are playing a new role in automation. The show moves toward a discussion on how the Bible is not only a harmful to display in schools but may also be harmful to Christians as they take their journey with their faith. They then interview Marie from Everyone’s Agnostic Podcast with her decision to join the show and her desire to help those who want to leave their faith and need stories to guide them through the journey. The show ends with Tanner and Hannas quicksaves.

Cellar Door Skeptics 163: Tanner Goes to Jesus Camp

Click the image to listen to the show!

This week has been a long week for the team. This episode comes a day late as the team is trying to catch up on work and home life. But do not fear they managed to put together a thoughtful episode this week. It begins with a discussion on the Super Bowl, The Ads, and Trump’s State of the Union Address. They continue the show with a look at the charity of the week, Camp Quest Michigan. They tell stories about their camp experiences and how it affected their lives. The show ends with a discussion about Jesus Camp, how it related to Tanner’s upbring and camp experiences, and a look into what Hanna may encounter when his children grow up and want to go to camp.

Cellar Door Skeptics 162: Do Democrats Oppose Walls / New York’s Late Term Abortion Law

The duo starts the show off talking about the charity of the week. The Holocaust was a huge tragedy that plagued the world in the 30s and 40s. The charity is a local memorial museum that helps everyone know the history of the atrocities that happened to millions of people.

As the show continues on, Tanner talks about some of the recent articles pushed by the Anti-Choice groups that believe the New York law allowing women to have abortions after 24 weeks due to complications is going to lead to women having numerous abortions because they just want to. The articles use fear tactics, fake news, and slippery slope arguments to try and conflate the real news of women being able to make their own choices about their health care.

The final segment Hanna did some research to investigate how many times democrats have voted for a wall. He looks into if it is a valid argument many trumpsters pose and what we need to know to ensure that we can make informed decisions when it comes to the next election cycle.

The show ends as always with Hanna’s and Tanner’s Infamous Quick Saves of the week.
